Third Time's the Charm!


BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!!
I thought the only thing that could compete with my Liberty pouches was Marimekko!

I will be teaching a THIRD metal frames pouch class at Sewing Summit on Saturday, October 13th from 115-315!!!!!!  There are a couple of important things to know about this extra hands-on class:

1.  This is an unofficial Sewing Summit class.  You must email me at kelbybowser@gmail.com to claim your spot.  I will email you back to let you know you're in.  Once you are officially in my class, you MUST MUST MUST MUST MUST unregister for any class you have on Saturday, October 13th from 115-315.  This is essential!   

2. It will be limited to 40 students

3.  It will cost $4--given to me at class time--for a frame.  I will have enough frames for everyone to purchase one at the time of class.  Even if you do not get into any of my classes, there will still be frames available for purchase at Sewing Summit so you can learn from me or someone else during open sew times!

4.  You need to bring glue, or share glue with someone.  I will have the left over tubes from the morning class, but there is no guarantee there will be enough for everyone.  One tube of the Gutterman glue I recommend will make at least 5 pouches, so feel free to share!

5.  Bring a FQ worth of batting OR fusible fleece to class.  I'm unsure whether there will be left overs from the previous two classes, so to be safe, you may want to make sure and have a scrap on hand.  There will be plenty of batting floating around at SS so I'm sure you can scrounge up a scrap when you get there.

6.  Winn at While Baby Naps on Etsy has sweetly given us a 20% coupon code for supplies in her shop until October 13th (code can be seen on the Sewing Summit Google Group page only).  You can buy all sort of sizes and style frames as well as the Gutterman glue from her site.  If you are international, I would suggest asking an American Sewing Summit friend to be your mailing address so that you will be certain to have your order in time for Sewing Summit.  She ships very quickly!  Again, I will have frames for you to purchase at class time, but this is a great opportunity to stock up on supplies at a fabulous price!

7.  We will only have a few sewing machines!  I hope to have around 4 machines in the class for us to use.  This means we have to share, however, this class time is 45 minutes longer than my other two classes so we should be good!  If anyone doesn't finish and still wants help, please just corner me during the open sew times and I'll help you out!

8.  Please keep in mind that I gave up one of the classes I wanted to take in order to teach a third metal frames class.  I do NOT want to hear any complaints about how I'm handling the signups.  It is at my discretion who gets into this class, so don't piss me off! :)   I would love for everyone who wants to learn to get in, but I must cap the class at 40.  I will post on the Google Group discussion when the class is full.  

So, if you want in, email me at kelbybowser@gmail.com  I will email you back to let you know you're in!  If more than 40 people email me, I will start a wait list based on who was first.
I hope this helps those of you who were unable to get into a hand-on class!  I'm so thrilled to be teaching at Sewing Summit and I can't wait to meet you all!

UPDATE: I'm over half full already!  Be sure to tell any friends you have coming to Summit so they don't miss out on a chance to take another hands-on class!

I love you Kelly...

Sally said...

Thanks, your'e a peach! I've emailed you my official non-pissy request!

Spoolhardy Girl said...

How exciting! I'm off to check my class schedule. I will let you know shortly. THANK YOU!

Amy said...

How sweet of you to drop one of your classes to do this! And #8 is too funny!

Spoolhardy Girl said...

Hmm, I have a question. My schedule shows sessions on Saturday beginning at 9:00, 10:30, 2:00 and 4:00, but none at 1:15. Am I missing something?

diane said...

Thank you for being blunt...I am so tired of reading all the complaints from people. You are awesome. I don't need to take this class but I applaud you for giving up your time.

Mary, the afternoon sessions right after lunch both days start at 1:15. The .pdf on the website is always the most correct source of information, for some reason the printed copies of schedules is showing that session as being at 2pm, which is incorrect. The copy you'll receive in your welcome packet will list the correct time. :) Erin

You are too nice! We all owe you a huge thanks!! (hope I am earlier enough getting the news to be able to jump in!) :)

Diane {from blank pages...} said...

Not sure where to ask this, so maybe Erin will answer this here... I got in this unofficial pouch class, and dropped my maxi class. Will the $5 fee for the maxi class be refunded? or can that be transferred to Kelly? Not sure how that works... thanks!

Oh my Lord...I laughed out loud when I read that! I love you Kelly...we're two peas in a pod ;)

Erin @ Two More Seconds said...

Diane, Our registration system will recognize that you are owed a $5 refund and send it back to the card you used when you paid it. It usually happens within 2-3 business days of you dropping the class that caused the refund. You will still need to bring the money in cash to Kelly for the new pouch class. Hope this helps!

I officially de-registered from my 1:15 class (Blogging with Tauni) and am super excited to make a little pouch :) I also absolutely love #8, and am glad you said it. So much hard work is being put into making Sewing Summit a great time for everyone and that hard work seems to be getting beaten down quite a bit, sadly. Having professionally planned medical conventions and conferences in my pre-baby life, I can completely understand the logistical issues involved in planning something like this, and I think Erin and her team are doing a great job trying to give everyone an experience they won't soon forget. :)

I bought a whole kit from While Baby Naps more than six months ago and the box of goodies has been sitting untouched mocking me ever since! I'm so thrilled to be in your unofficial class, thanks for making it happen.
